Ingredient List: 

2 cups all-purpose flour **
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup 2% milk

Preheat oven to 450°F.

In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in dry mixture; add milk all at once. Stir with fork just until dough clings together. Knead gently on lightly floured surface (10 to 12 strokes). Roll or pat dough to ½-inch thickness. Cut with 2½-inch biscuit cutter; dip cutter into flour between cuts. Bake on an un-greased baking sheet in preheated oven until golden, about 12 minutes.

** Note: When substituting self-rising for all-purpose flour, omit the baking powder and salt.
